Spairliners will further strengthen the support, service and reliability for Emirates' A380s
Emirates has decided to entrust Spairliners with component care for its fleet of Airbus A380 aircraft. Emirates operates the world’s largest fleet of Airbus A380s, which will eventually include 123 aircraft. “Component support for any aircraft is critical. But the complexity is multiplied many times over when it’s for the largest passenger aircraft – the A380s, and specifically for us, as we are its largest operator. Our association with Spairliners will further strengthen the support, service and reliability for our A380s, the flagship of our fleet, which will translate to optimized operations and a better customer experience”, comments Ammar Al-Zaben, Emirates’ Vice President Procurement Aircraft.
